Typewriters XO

The patterned paper with its typewriters inspired my colors and XO sentiment.  A happy and lively "love" card to bring a smile to someone's day.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) true black, hibiscus burst (pink), pure poppy (red),  the gingham and stripe prints from PTI fine linen (tan) pattern pack, and Pink Paislee pen pals 6 x 6" pad for the typewriter print. The typewriters say "xoxo," "with love," "hello," and "pen pals."  I was careful to cover up "pen pals" which didn't seem to fit my card theme.
  • Ribbon is 1/4" black and white gingham. 
  • Dies are PTI framed out #11 (inner heart shape) and polka dot parade alphabet (lower case).
  • I used the 1/4" Corner Chomper to round the corners on the pink and the striped tan card stock.
